How does the EF rate against the others?

Hi there,

just had a thought.

How does the EF hold up against the many other European community based ones on the internet?

I mean the EF is so diverse, so many different opinions about similar situations, so many nationalities with so many different experiences. It's got to be among the most widely used, patronised forums (or fora) ever.

Many a time I've looked in at really unsociable hours of the day and there are literally hundreds of registered users and guests online - it's pretty incredible really.

Of course there will be some that say 'only in Switzerland'. But you know what? I think that's exactly the point. What other countries in the world really do have the 'Marmite' factor?

Just thinking........

I heard that EF had been pegged at 1.20 per Toytown.

(One of the most) patronised forums.

Hi there,

How does the EF hold up against the many other European community based ones on the internet?

I mean the EF is so diverse, so many different opinions about similar situations, so many nationalities with so many different experiences. It's got to be among the most widely used, patronised forums (or fora) ever.

Many a time I've looked in at really unsociable hours of the day and there are literally hundreds of registered users and guests online - it's pretty incredible really.

Of course there will be some that say 'only in Switzerland'. But you know what? I think that's exactly the point. What other countries in the world really do have the 'Marmite' factor?

Alright, back on (off) topic,

it's still a cool forum right?

I mean what else would you be doing now (aside from visiting left-handed websites) instead of stringing up a newbie?
